fun with {castles}

I asked Little Bit for a list of topics she wanted to read books about this summer and this is what she came up with....castles, princesses, butterflies, flowers, unicorns, rainbows.  All of which are very fun and girly!  ;)   I'm also going to throw in some general summer themed books as well. 

So we started off with castles.  Here are the books we checked out from the library...
The Princess and the Pig by Heather Amery
The Girl in the Castle Inside the Museum by Kate Bernheimer
Over at the Castle by Boni Ashburn
We Just Moved! by Stephen Krensky

She loved all these books very much...especially the first 2 listed.  We Just Moved was fun since we are going to be moving soon!

We also did a few activities...
castle building {we used our wooden blocks to build castles for the little princesses}

shape castle {used this idea from pinterest and gave Little Bit some shapes to create her own castle.  She ended up cutting more shapes to add and used some buttons.}

What fun books/themes do you have planned with your kids for the summer?  We are gearing up for our local library's summer reading program too.  Be sure and check to see if your local library has one you can get your kids involved in!
